スイス、銀行源泉徴収制の発案者の話

全預金者のリストを自動で提出しろ!と意気込んでいる連中は、膨大な書類を受け取るだけで、たいした増収効果は得られない。それよりスイス側で源泉徴収したほうが楽チンで増収効果も高いでしょ?



"No other country offers more»

Handels Zeitung, 23.12.2009

The spiritual father of the withholding tax defended the financial center strategy: Switzerland will go with that offer more than any other country. According to BSI-Chief Alfredo Gysi these countries brings more than the automatic exchange of information.

France returns the stolen customer data. Smoothing the waves in the tax dispute between France and Switzerland, now slow?

Alfredo Gysi: I hope so. It was true that Switzerland has thrown the DTCs in the balance. It was a strong signal that we do not accept illegal activities. The decisive factor will ultimately be the key economic relations between the two countries. These two countries do not want to gamble.

If the data theft a threat to banks because the interest of foreign countries to increase customer data?

Gysi: No, thefts of customer data has always existed. State has a right to follow the law and may not be an instigator of a criminal act, such as data theft.

Had France not at all interested in stolen data, if subject to a withholding tax?

Gysi: No, because the withholding tax, we guarantee that the European countries will receive the taxes of their citizens, or at the express request of the customer information about their banking relationships. We thus provide more than all other financial centers in the world. And we are no longer defensive. The proposal brings benefits to all stakeholders.

What?

Gysi: The withholding tax is the only way to protect the privacy for genuine customers. For banks, it is advantageous to be able to offer a model affects legitimate. You will no longer be criminalized, and can provide their services abroad. The financial center of Switzerland will no longer be attacked because it assumes no evidence untaxed money. Customers can use their property freely and European countries will receive their tax returns.

Not more than Italy and Germany are likely to be interested ...

Gysi: No, only in the EU 17 member states about a final withholding tax. All states but want to get tax money. We make a very generous offer. Therefore, it is difficult to see, why the third should have no interest.

And if the states have other motives?

Gysi: It is an interesting test whether the countries of the taxpayer or its citizens is a matter of destroying the financial center of Switzerland. However, there is no European country that had something like this to win an economic war against Switzerland. Not a single European financial market would be able to assume the role of Switzerland and attract foreign assets of this magnitude.

If the idea is not too late?

Gysi: I do not think so, because it is never too late to take a proactive approach. The time window is very favorable, with the mountains of debt of European countries by the crisis has drastically increased.

If the withholding tax for the states more attractive than the automatic exchange of information?

Gysi: The automatic exchange of information is much less attractive for the EU countries as a final withholding tax. You will receive a flood of data with which they cannot do much.

If the banks so that the long arm of the foreign tax authorities?

Gysi: These are the banks already today. You must comply with the Qualified Intermediary Agreement with the U.S. and the Savings Tax Agreement with the EU. The withholding tax is a development of the savings tax agreement, but eliminates the vulnerability.

How much will it cost the banks?

Gysi: The implementation means a higher cost as the introduction of the Savings. A bank can only serve customers who want the automatic exchange of information, as is now the case with the Savings Tax Agreement. Then she has not the whole effort.

How will react with other financial centers, bank secrecy tradition?

Gysi: The other financial centers have been hiding in the past behind Switzerland. The fact that Switzerland is now proposing a proactive strategy, the other financial centers are coming under pressure. I can imagine that there will be imitators. For example, Luxembourg and Austria in particular, which has a comprehensive final withholding tax.

Will there be given the new orientation of the financial center of consolidation?

Gysi: The new strategic direction will require an adjustment of our business models. There will be banks that do not create this change. I expect a consolidation phase, but I am convinced that the financial center will come out stronger from this development.
